2000 to Today

Looking at the Numbers

This past March, I posted some figures marking the two-year anniversary of the March 9, 2009, low in the equity markets. With the recent turmoil, I thought I would expand the data base some, plus it gives you a reminder of key market highs as well.

All the following is based on closing prices. I have added the low for the week of 8/8-8/12 for each index.

S&P 500

3/24/00…1527 [then all-time high]
10/9/02…776
10/9/07…1565 [new all-time high}
3/9/09…..676
3/9/11….1320 [up 95% off the ’09 low]
8/8/11….1119

Nasdaq

3/10/00…5048 [all-time high]
10/9/02…1114
10/9/07…2803
3/9/09….1268
3/9/11….2751 [up 117% off the ’09 low]
8/8/11….2357

Dow Jones

1/14/00…11722 [then all-time high]
10/9/02…7286
10/9/07…14164 [new al-time high]
3/9/09…..6547
3/9/11…..12213 [up 86% off the ’09 low]
8/10/11…10719

But what of the leading international indices? [using S&P high of 3/24/00 as benchmark date]

London FTSE

3/24/00…6738
10/9/02…3742
10/9/07…6615
3/9/09….3542
3/9/11….5937 [up 68% off the ’09 low]
8/10/11…5007

Frankfurt DAX

3/24/00…7932
10/9/02…2597
10/9/07…7980
3/9/09….3692
3/9/11….7131 [up 93% off the ’09 low]
8/10/11…5613

Tokyo Nikkei

3/24/00…19958
10/9/02…8539
10/9/07…17159
3/9/09….7086
3/9/11….10589 [up 49% off the ’09 low]
8/9/11….8944

By the way, it was way back on 12/29/89…yes, 1989…that the Nikkei hit its all-time high of 38916. By 4/2/90, it was already down to 28002, and the rest is history.

*So…look at the performance of all six of the above since the spring of 2000. None of them are close to being up since then.

Just one more. Here are the key closing numbers for the S&P 500 in looking at 2011.

12/31/10…1257
4/29/11….1363
6/15/11….1265
7/7/11…..1353
8/8/11…..1119
